When is trapping necessary to rid my property of pigeons?

If you don’t solve your pigeon problem in a timely manner (within 2-3 months) the nesting pigeons will multiply to a small flock of 6-8 pigeons. At this point, pigeon control methods like screening and spikes won’t be enough to move them off of your property. The birds will find another place on your roof that provides shelter like underneath your tiles or they may just nest out in the open without any shelter. For an example of this, see our video titled, “What do pigeons and foreclosures have in common?”

In one year a pair of nesting pigeons can reproduce to 16. Pigeons do NOT migrate, so once they are on your property they aren’t leaving unless you physically remove them by using a pigeon removal method such as trapping. Pigeons living in Southern Nevada are known as feral pigeons and have the same instincts as homing pigeons. This means that if the pigeons on your property are trapped, removed, and released, even at a far away location, they have the ability to return to your property.

Hopefully you’ve been able to catch your pigeon problem within the first few months. If not we will most likely recommend a pigeon removal program such as trapping to completely remove the nesting flock from your property. After the pigeons have been removed, we can clean the roof and install screening or spikes to prevent future nesting.
